There is an angle on the clamp. All my flanges are flat. The only time I've had trouble with my flanges was when they weren't thick enough.

The angle for the flange face is 20°

Early on in the thread, someone used a wire /tube insert for the ring, this is will be my plan of attack - as the most common issue seems to be over flattening
